I was referring to stealing bandwidth. If he's directly linked to this site, then it's this site that has to pay for the bandwidth usage whenever somebody watches one of his videos.

That post sounded like it came from a personal friend of Earlon's. Just a guess. ;)

What several of us found quite annoying if not outright offensive was Earlon's massive spam posting of fake reviews, over 200 in one day I believe, which were in fact nothing but blatant and tasteless plugs for his own website. A real no-class stunt on Earlon's part. He deserved to be called on the carpet for it, and he was.

As you were, skybandit. :)

Stealing bandwidth?? Are you kidding me? You don't get out much do you.

Do you have any idea how many web sites there are out there that stream video off of Archive.org? Dozens, if not hundreds of them. I know because I am always out looking for programs for our station. Most of them carry ads and many sell DVDs - none of them navigate as easily as the site we are talking about, which is completely non-commercial as far as I can tell.

Spamming your Review section was a bonehead stunt but as
I read the posts down the page, the only thing I see that might be illegal in this situation are the calls for people to harass the guy.

I think that IS illegal in several States.

Lots of people spam the Archive here and there, but his spamming was massive and rapid-fire. We asked and eventually demanded that the spamming stop. He deserved to be called on it until he stopped. What was it, 208 spam posts in less than 24 hours? There's no defense for that.
